Nat picked up a pencil a few years ago and explored several media before choosing oil painting. She is currently working on conveying the serene beauty of horses in her Timeless Florals series. Each subject is approached in a different way. Horses are portrayed in a realistic, classical manner, to capture both their strength and softness. An underpainting is completed first and is then covered with several glazes of color. In the floral series, she works more intuitively, boosting the flowers’ natural colors and shapes, for a more idealistic result. In a third, but less extensive series, people portraits are achieved in the same traditional manner as the equine portraits: an underpainting is completed over a detailed drawing and then glazed over. Most paintings are done in oil on deep panels. A few portraits are, however, completed in ink on paper.
